If the BlackBerry Storm 2, Curve 2, Motorola Droid, or HTC Droid Eris don't tickle your fancy, perhaps the LG Chocolate Touch will. According to rumors, the device is slated to land in Verizon Wireless retail locations in the coming weeks as part of the carrier's holiday lineup. Featuring a 3.2-megapixel camera, VZ Navigator and other V CAST services, and EVDO Rev. 0, the device could do well if it's positioned at the proper price point, but Verizon has a habit of pricing their "enhanced multimedia devices" at prices close to their PDA counterparts.
I'm guessing that the Chocolate Touch will require a data plan of some sort, but I'm sure it will be well received, despite its lack of resemblance to the BL40 family. With numerous PDA devices launching in the coming months, will it make a dent?
